Why have we waited so long!
9 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

This was a wonderful series, and like others i didn't manage to video it. Every year I check the internet, hoping someone will find it for me for Christmas! It doesn't seem to have been repeated, nor to have been recorded - Jenny Seagrove, Kevin Macnally and Patsy Kensit acted their socks off in it. The character Diana Gayelorde-Sutton is a spoilt little rich girl, played by Kensit when younger and Seagrove when older. It is a classic tale of star crossed lovers. The book was written by RF Deldefield, and most of his books were modern masterpieces, such wonderful sagas. I have recently had to replace the book, it's been read so often. Someone, somewhere, please release the DVD - it must be possible! I'm sure there are many of us that will rush to the BBC shops or Amazon to buy it
